RICHMOND, Calif. —
A Richmond Target store re-opened Wednesday afternoon after a bomb threat prompted the store's evacuation, a police sergeant said.
Someone called in the threat to the Target at 4500 MacDonald Ave. around 10 a.m., Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.
The caller threatened to place a bomb inside the store and said it would detonate within 30 minutes, Abetkov said.
Target staff notified police around 11 a.m., and officers arrived and evacuated the store and nearby businesses at the Macdonald 80 Shopping Center, Abetkov said.
Police went into the store and searched for any suspicious devices, and just after 1 p.m. determined that there was nothing dangerous inside or outside of the store.
Abetkov said police are investigating who placed the call.
She said that as of 1:15 p.m. the Target and other stores were starting to allow customers back inside.
